Best City In the United Kingdom

The Top Ten Best City In the United Kingdom

1 London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

It breaks my heart not to see London at its rightful place. Beautiful; historical; charming; elegant. London is welcoming, has friendly, intelligent, funny individuals. It's the only place I can truly call home. It captured my heart the very first time my parents took me to visit at the age of seven. I now work in central London and adore every second I spend there. I even travel back at weekends just to be 'home' again. I would love to live and settle down there. It's the capital of England, Great Britain and, yes, the world! - Britgirl

1. London
2. Liverpool
3. Manchester
4. Edinburgh
5. York
6. Birmingham
7. Glasgow
8. Winchester
9. Newcastle
10. Nottingham

Not just the best city in the UK, but also in the world. Pollsters do vouch for London's premier status in the following: financial, government, arts, fashion, music, transportation, tourism, software development, science breakthroughs and even top universities in education. Think of all these aspects and see if you could come up with a city that seems close. Keep on trying...

The only city here that has power, history, beautiful architecture, charm and originality. The capitol of the world!

2 Liverpool Liverpool is a city and metropolitan borough in Merseyside, England. As of 2018, the population is approximately 494,814.

Beautiful and home to the Beatles

Best by far, just see it at night. - HufflepuffGeekGirl

Amazing City! By far the best place in the UK. Probably the best City for music in the world and has got loads of tourist attractions.

Best city in the UK by far, friendliest people and best skyline

3 Manchester

I'm from Manchester, and I'm so glad I live here! It is amazingly homey and cosy!

My family Hollingworth is from there, even have a little part of it named Hollingworth. My family was the 1st family in America in 1607 Jamestown and started their journey from Manchester. I have never been too England but I bet Manchester is the best.

4 Edinburgh

Full of history, festivals and chippers. How can life get better

Edinburgh is one of the best cities in he world. (in my opinion) It has amazing attractions and monuments, and Edinburgh Castle is outstanding. It often holds a show called the 'Edinburgh Tattoo' and it is amazing. If you are ever looking for a day out, visit Edinburgh!

Beautiful city. Kind locals and great shopping. Very clean and safe even in the festival season

Greatest place on earth! The worst place is London

5 Newcastle

Newcastle is by far the most friendly city in the UK and in my opinion the most beautiful

It is a fantastic City vibrant interesting and is a lot bigger than you think if you explore it

6 Birmingham

Islamabad is far better than Birmingham compare the climate and the serenity

Most underrated but up and coming city in the country.

They should rename Birmingham "Islamambad". It is difficult to believe you are in the UK when in Birmingahm.

It is a disgrace we have allowed this to happen to our country

Love birminghamm

7 Glasgow

Glasgow rules... True scots live here!

8 Leeds

Leeds is the best city in England.(Opinion) Although many agree with me.We have trinity and White Rose centre.Leeds is the home to The national history museum of The Tudors and The Victorians,so clearly it has historical significance.And we have a low population and a rich Council which does not require you to pay a Pound whenever you go to the ATM.UNLIKE BIRMINGHAM or Bradford

I love this city the most, its lights are amazing and I think it's a great place to visit.

It's a wonderful city for young people

Leeds is suprisingly quite a nice place now, unlike what it used to be.

9 York

Beautiful place, gorgeous buildings, packed with things to do.
Classy compared to Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham.
One of the best

10 Sheffield

The peace gardens are the most beautiful thing in the evening


The Contenders

11 Bristol

Bristol has become a lovely city to live in. Okay the buses could be run better but it is now a relaxing diverse city to be in with plenty of things to do for the whole family. As with any city it has things that could be improved on but I know that whatever I am going to do in my day it's going to be a good day out whether it is family orientated or just adult entertainment. There are all kinds of festivals going on with a great atmosphere. We have the benefit of easy access to other nearby places like Clifton, Weston Super Mare, Gloucestershire or Bath or crossing the bridge to Wales for a complete change depending on how we feel. As Bristol is now I am very happy to be here.

Bristol is great vibrant/multi-cultural city

12 Nottingham

I lived all my life and I love it


Great city.

13 Brighton

Brighton is beautiful, lively, vibrant, colourful. I was born and raised there. But if home is where the heart is, then I'm happy to call London my home. - Britgirl

Pewdiepie lives here

The most beautiful city in the world, without a doubt.

Best city in world

15 Hull

16 Cambridge

We are better than hull

17 Chichester

I love chichester it's my home and also there's beautiful buildings like the cathedral.

18 Southampton

Great history, great shopping, great green space and great nightlife, although needs to make better use of tourists and advertise whats on more as it is the busiest cruise port in Europe.
Surrounded by nice places like Winchester and the New Forest as well.

Two words: WEST QUAY!

19 Dundee
20 Blackpool

Great and wonderful place, only that the trams are SOOO slow, heck the old ones are faster than the modern.


Amazing! - HufflepuffGeekGirl

21 Leicester


I live here!

22 Exeter

Beautiful city in the south west.

23 Cardiff

Cardiff is the best

24 Belfast Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, the second-largest city in Ireland after Dublin, and is situated around the River Lagan, which runs through the city.

Never been there but looks kinda scary! - Lightningboy

Don’t believe the horror stories. Most of the drama is gone. Only bad thing is the homophobic anti-abortion government.

Yes their may be a lot of dicks in Belfast but there is everywhere in the world.
I'm so proud to say that I'm from Northern Ireland we've had a very troubled path and we've come such a long and glorious way.
They say Home is where the heart is, and my heart is truely and will always be in the heart of northern ireland.

Norn iron!

25 Oxford
26 Salisbury

It houses the best preserved copy of Magna Carta in its Cathedral (which is the tallest in England) and is the home of Stonehenge (which used to be a Wonder of the World). It was also home to William Golding and Tery Pratchett lived nearby.

27 Dublin

You wish Dublin was in the UK...

28 Portsmouth

Very nice city, has a great history and has easy coonections to other areas. Beautiful surroundings as well.

Stampy lives here - Kooper1193

29 Stoke-on-Trent


This city was the face of industry for decades, Britain’s capital of pottery and mining.
It’s the home of oatcakes, Robbie Williams, Arnold Bennett, Victoria Hall, Stanley Matthews and (along with other cities in England) the birthplace of The Industrial Revolution, particularly British ceramics.

30 Bradford

Bradford is at #34,You might as well out Halifax at #1

Good city, has the national media museum, and alhambra

31 Coventry

Coventry is awesome

In the Malory Towers books whenever somebody in their class betrayed them they would 'send them to Coventry.'

32 Plymouth

A no-brainer. Plymouth is a wonderful city that has so many new buildings and services that are coming soon, with a real sense of community. It has a reputation for being rough as hell, but since the 1990s Plymouth has shaken any horrible stuff off itself and is now becoming a really nice place to live or go on holiday. Do not miss the Barbican or Plymouth Hoe, where you'll see famous attractions, beautiful Elizabethan areas and brilliant sea views. In the city centre, there have recently been booms in shopping - some are quirky independent stores in the Bohemian West End, or up at the top of town there are the major mainstream brands that everyone shops at these days. Do not be put off by any negative things said about Plymouth, because while it may have used to be that way, it has since changed that.

Beautiful city on the coast in the south west

33 St Helens

34 Norwich

43 Solihull

I lived in this city from 2010 to 2014 and I liked it a lot. I am a Swiss/German and did not know what to expect when I got told by my parents we were moving. Whilst nearby Birmingham is not too nice, Solihull is lovely. Low crime rate, wealthy, good transportation and many nice people.

44 Northampton
45 Londonderry

The second city of Northern Ireland and also the best. Has some of the best, most friendly and humurous people in the UK and is the most accepting cities to diversity, UK City of Culture 2013!
